This is the first time that I have stayed here. Love the Downunder Bar, it has a lot of room with a little dance floor and two pool tables. They also have a menu with some really good choices on it. Took Grandson there for some pool time. Love the new pool, the water was a little cool, but it...

The staff was great, room was huge BUT there was no shower head in the shower! My husband said it was like taking a shower with a firehose. And due to the location it was extremely noisy. Seems every 18 wheeler in the state went by the hotel that night. If they would fix the shower by adding a shower...

We were made to feel incredibly welcome right from the first step into the reception area. Wonderfully helpful and friendly, very down-to-earth. The room itself was average, but nothing wrong with it. The beds were comfortable, and it was quiet at night for sleeping. We were fairly close to the pool as well, which was a little old but fairly...

I've stayed here for 4 weeks interspersed during the summer and fall of 2014. The owners care a lot about the facility; the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are clean too. The carpets are new and the facility has a clean look and smell. The WiFi is excellent at all times of the day/evening. The windows open for fresh...

Part of this place is a nice hotel, the other part is motel. I stayed here twice within 2 weeks while traveling on a motorcycle trip. The first room was in the hotel part. The room was great, but it smelled like Arabic cologne (I know, I've been to the Middle East). The desk clerk said she had no room...

We travel regularly from Ontario to Nova Scotia and have been staying here in Maine as it is only a short drive over the border and accommodation is cheaper here than in New Brunswick. As we are here only one night we are less demanding than if it was a week. Oddly enough we usualyy request the old section as...

We pre-paid for a King size room, in the newly renovated ( if this exists) section. We walked in to two double beds, since we were paying for a King room we called the front desk. The woman indicated nothing else was available. Funny because we booked weeks ago? I was digesting our small room when I sat on the...

This Motel is family run and they do try to help you in all that they can. However, stay in the NEWLY renovated part and pay the little extra as the older section really need work. No smoking rooms have smoke smell that hits you like a brick when you walk in and are not really up to par with...
